Well.. I've always said I want my tattoos to have meaning or stories behind them.. So.. My whole life I've been in love with snowflakes.. They're delicate, no two are alike, they are only here for a second before they are gone, they're beautiful.. Then I have Nikki's snowflake tack set and at state championships I used to paint snowflakes on her..Down her neck, sides, butt, then down one leg.. So, because I'm in love with snowflakes I've getting a flurry of snowflakes down my side.. every one different, different sizes.. It's going to take more than one sitting because of all the detail I'm putting in it..
Then I want a Purple Martin somewhere, I haven't decided where yet.. When I was moving in my new house my friend, Katie, my Nana and I were sitting in the kitchen with the front and back door open. A Purple Martin flew in my back door and sat on the desk in the kitchen.. Katie said she wasn't going to touch it so I went to catch it and put it back outside. It let me walk right up to it and pick it up, didn't try to fly away at all. As I'm holding it he was just turning his head and looking at me.. I walked out on the back porch and opened my hand and he sat there looking at me before flying away.. Anyway, the bird stayed on my mind ALL day so I went that night and Google'd it.. He turned out to be a Purple Martin, the largest swallow in the US.. They are very rare to my area and only live in multiples. They're like a protected bird and all that stuff.. So I looked into the meaning of it and it means "Coming home", "Peace at last", "finally coming into oneself"... So, that little run in with the bird really made me think and now I want a tattoo of the bird..
